Want a copy of Slay the Spire? Enter our competition

By - | Views: 9,047

Slay the Spire, the absolutely brilliant fusion of a roguelike and a deck-building card game released with Linux support in January, now is your chance to win a copy.

As a reminder, here's what Slay the Spire features:

  • Dynamic Deck Building: Choose your cards wisely! Discover hundreds of cards to add to your deck with each attempt at climbing the Spire. Select cards that work together to efficiently dispatch foes and reach the top.
  • An Ever-changing Spire: Whenever you embark on a journey up the Spire, the layout differs each time. Choose a risky or safe path, face different enemies, choose different cards, discover different relics, and even fight different bosses!
  • Powerful Relics to Discover: Powerful items known as relics can be found throughout the Spire. The effects of these relics can greatly enhance your deck through powerful interactions. But beware, obtaining a relic may cost you more than just gold...

You can also some some previous thoughts of mine about it here.

What do you have to do to win?

Since it's a deck-building card game, how about you draw your own card and include it in our comments.

Who can enter?


When does it end?

I will pick a winner Friday evening UTC time. The winner will be sent a Personal Message on here with a Humble Store gift link.

Why are you doing this?

Humble Bundle sent over a copy of the latest Humble Monthly which includes it. I already own Slay the Spire so I would love for someone else to get the chance to enjoy it, while also appreciating your wonderful attempts at art.

Slay the Spire is available on Humble Store and Steam.

I feel like you didn't get the gist of it, where's your drawing? :P

Liam, do you usually have trouble parsing the hundred+ comments that inevitably ensure? How about asking to put a keyword in your comment if you intend to enter the competition?

Regarding this specific game, I will also get it in the next monthly, but feel a bit conflicted about it: I tend to dislike card games, especially virtual ones. I would apreciate if someone who has/had the same stance could comment on Slay the Spire?

Nah, it's fine.

Cat Attack!
Lowered damage on evil/rude enemies

Your opponent is pounced by a variable 2 to 3 cats
(Depending on mana used) that immediately start to
sit on and overheat the target of this deadly
ability. This along with the puring causes serious
paralysis and lowered perception.

Special High Level Ability:
There is a %50 chance deciding if the target is a
dog or cat person. If they are a cat person, they
have no saving throws against the paralysis and will
be %100 entranced by the cute cats. All food and
water on them will be voluntarily fed to the cats
while under this trance. If they are a dog person,
the cats will attack them dealing a sufficient amount
of damage to dramatize the target for life. In the
future, enemies of this type will auto-surrender to
the cat card.

How you like that?

I'm not sure this can be considered as "drawing" since I just edit and modify the existing resources, but here it is anyway.

QuoteEdit: Sorry - image upload and embedding seems hard... Tried again - this'll have to do. Follow the link I guess?

Link since I can't get the img tag to work...

Made using inkscape.

This was fun :). Good way to think about something else during lunch break.


Edit from LiamD: Fixed the img for you.
